    Angry Enter Activation Key?


    I tried launching FM09 today, hwoever I get greeted with a message to enter my activation key. I purchased this game voer Steam, so I right click - view CD key - copy then paste it into the dialog box. However, it tells me the key is in use and asks me to purcahse one?

    What the hell is going on? I DID purcahse one! Now I have to purchase another?

    Thanks in advance.

    Error: You are receiving the Error ‘Product Key already Active’ message

    Fix: You need to delete the certificates and re-activate the game

    1) On receiving the error, please uninstall the game
    2) Please navigate to the following directory:

    XP users: C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Sports Interactive\Football Manager 2009 Certificate
    Vista users: C:\Program Data\Sports Interactive\Football Manager 2009 Certificate

    3) Please ensure that it is the \certificate directory you are located in

    4) Delete all content

    5) Reboot the machine

    6) Re-run the installation program and retry activation - ensuring you have 'verified' your key using the following website:

    7) You should now be activated
    Tried this?

    My game did that a couple of days ago aswell. In the end I had to uninstall it and install it again. I just opened up steam and chose the option to remove the local stuff and then redownload and install it again.
